    AAP March Live Updates: The Aam Aadmi Party began the protest march to PM Narendra Modi’s residence at 4 PM today. The march, which began from Mandi House, is being held in support of the sit-in protest of CM Arvind Kejriwal and his cabinet colleagues at L-G Anil Baijal’s office.

New Delhi, Jun 17: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has begun the protest march to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s residence. The party is holding the march to support the sit-in of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his cabinet colleagues at the Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal’s office for the last six days demanding him to direct IAS officers to end their “strike”. Meanwhile, the IAS officers in a press conference have claimed that they are not on strike and are being used for completely political reasons.

Meanwhile, the Delhi Police said no permission was sought for the march, even as AAP leaders alleged that party supporters were being prevented from taking part in the rally.

“The call given by the AAP to march towards PM office or residence is without permission. No permission has been applied for. As such the areas under New Delhi district are under prohibitory orders,” a senior Delhi Police officer said. “Those trying to take out the march will be detained since no permission has been sought for it,” he said.

Four Metro rail stations – Central Secretariat, Patel Chowk, Udyog Bhawan and Lok Kalyan Marg (Race Course) – will be closed to prevent AAP workers and supporters to reach Mandi House, venue of the march scheduled at 4 PM. However, the interchange facilities will continue at Central Secretariat.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal alongwith his deputy Manish Sisodia, ministers Satyendar Jain and Gopal Rai, is sitting at the office of Lt Governor Anil Baijal for past one week, demanding him to direct IAS officers to end their “strike” and approve doorstep delivery scheme of his government.
